Breakdown of Install Issue - Can't read Install CD

Hello,
Here's the breakdown:

HP Laptop with Vista Home Premium 32 bit
Install Windows 7 Home Premium
Had to remove HP Quick Launch - no issues
During verification the system kept asking me to remove kaspersky anti-virus - I do not have this on my computer - never had.
Just to be sure I downloaded a removal program for Kaspersky and it couldn't find any files.
Restarted my system now when I go to run the install it can't read the cd.
Any thoughts?

If you want a clean install, have you tried booting directly from the Windows 7 install disc--as opposed to starting from within Windows?

Very good suggestion, I would give it a try. The most important part of the suggestion, is the mention of a clean install. Do a clean install regardless of method used.
